Throughout the month of October, Our City of Colours has been busy rolling out their second wave of posters designed to increase the visibility of queer people in cultural and linguistic communities throughout the Lower Mainland. (The last poster went online on November 2.)
The community-based non-profit organization released their first set of posters in November 2011.
This second set includes some communities represented in the first wave of posters, such as Chinese, Farsi, and Punjabi.
But they also expanded their reach to address French, Spanish, Russian, and Vietnamese communities. They’ve also included elder and trans individuals in this set.
In the gallery below are just some of the posters that you’ll see going up around town. The ones shown below represent the new communities that the campaign is reaching out to that weren’t in the first set.
